Adding News Content to a Project (End User)

Oracle's Siebel applications are already integrated with Siebel Content Services, an online news and information subscription service that accesses information from several industry news services. When your organization subscribes to Siebel Content Services, you can personalize the delivery of external news content to specific sections within your project pages.

Creating a News Topic

You can use Content Services to create news topics, which are records that specify the search criteria used to find current news on topics relevant to your project. For more information about creating a news topic, see Siebel Applications Administration Guide.

Adding a News Topic

After the appropriate news topics are created, you can add the news topics to your project. Siebel Projects application uses the news topics you add to the project to retrieve relevant news stories and include the links in the Project News section on your Project Summary page.
